Unfortunately, every now and then it takes a colossal tragedy to once again appreciate the value of service our police officers and other first responders offer to our communities. The Boston tragedy played out in front of our eyes on television, but for our first responders this is their life. They prepare for this every day they dress in uniform to report to work. Many deal with violence too often, and still they are always ready to put their lives on the line to protect their fellow citizens.
I will always be proud to say, “My son, the police officer.”
